Chelsea vs Huddersfield Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 2nd February 2019
Chelsea vs Huddersfield – Premier : Chelsea got off to a very good start in the league. At the start of the season, they were very close to Manchester City and Liverpool.
But little by little, they kept losing their momentum and they are currently in 5th place of the Premier League, 14 points away from the league leaders.
The Blues have been losing momentum and they have only won 1 of the last 4 encounters. They are coming off 2 consecutive losses, 2-0 against Arsenal away from home and more recently 4-0 in Bournemouth.
Meanwhile, they’ve advanced in the Carabao Cup knocking out the Spurs on penalties and in the FA Cup, defeating Sheffield by 3-0.
The last loss against Bournemouth in the league left some stains, with the manager locking the players in the locker room, and the environment between players and manager hasn’t been the best in the past couple of days.
Huddersfield is on a very delicate position in the Premier League. They sit in last place of the league table with only 11 points after 24 matches and they are already 12 points away from the salvation spots.
Naturally, that distance is still recoverable. However, the team has been producing very little and it will be hard for them to avoid relegation. They’ve switched managers in January, but the results didn’t appear, and the difficulties are still there for the team.
Offensively, they are in crisis, and they haven’t scored any goal on their last 4 official matches.
Huddersfield has another complicated match here but they want to take advantage of some of the controversy that has been surrounding this Chelsea side to get some points.
Chelsea vs Huddersfield– Betting Tip and Prediction: :
Chelsea are clearly favourites on this encounter. However, they are going through a somewhat rocky period, after getting thrashed by Bournemouth by 4-0.
That was a loss that, in my opinion, will leave consequences, even more after the controversy with the manager after the end of the match.
Huddersfield, except for the match against Manchester City, where they have conceded 3 goals, has been conceding very few goals and in that perspective, I think this Handicap fits this match well.
I expect a complicated encounter for Chelsea, that will face a very defensive opponent that will try to score their goal through counter-attacks and set pieces.
Chelsea has also been scoring very few goals in the last couple of matches and therefore, I expect this +2.5 Handicap in favour of Huddersfield will be a winner because I don’t believe that the Blues will win comfortably.
